Oversize droplets were produced in a turbulent flame reactor (TFR) to simulate a condition of atomization failure. A sampling method for simultaneous collection of volatile and some semi-volatile compounds was developed and given an initial evaluation. The relative destruction efficiency (DE) of five chlorinated hydrocarbons (CHC) was determined for comparison with existing incinerability ranking methodologies and with single droplet burning studies. The relative order of DE from most to least difficult to destroy was determined to be 1,2,4-trichlorobenzene > tetrachloroethene > trichloroethene > 1,1,2,2-tetrachloroethane > 1-chloropentane > heptane. The order is as predicted by thermal stability or theoretical flame mode kinetics under low oxygen conditions.
